  • Enbridge's Oklahoma-Illinois pipeline can proceed, court rules [View news story]
    Have organizations like the Sierra Club and the National Wildlife Federation become simply self hating and America hating organizations who's mission is to try to throw a wrench into the path of progress?

    I'm all for saving the environment but when there is no impact and even the judge says there is no basis for the suit these organizations are no longer protecting anything.

    They need to work harder at excising their personal demons and stop trying to make the country fit into their demented vision of a "perfect" world.

  • New charges filed against FedEx over pharmacy shipment lawsuit [View news story]
    Can someone explain if this is what it looks like, another Obama/Holder attempt at controlling pharmaceutical sales that are outside of Obamacare's control or is there something else going on here?

  • Boeing secures agreement to sell aircraft parts to Iran [View news story]
    And to "Energysystems". Just because someone does something stupid in the past, does that give someone else carte blanc to do something stupid now? I thought humans could learn from their mistakes. Silly me.

  • Boeing secures agreement to sell aircraft parts to Iran [View news story]
    Well I guess Boeing is now officially off of the list of stocks I am looking at. I do believe in capitalism but I don't believe in suicide or helping the enemy. I guess Boeing missed the memo about the great Satan.

  • Nebraska court’s Keystone plan could bring October surprise [View news story]
    It's interesting that what is good for the country is bad for the President. If that doesn't tell you something I guess nothing will.

  • Food Stamp Usage Is Cratering And That Might Be A Bad Sign [View article]
    Previously there were 28 million people were on food stamps and now there are 46.1 million people on food stamps but since this is a very slight improvement from the disastrous 47.6 million people the 46.1 million number is an improvement? Talk about putting lipstick on a pig! It appears that you have a bright future working for the government.

  • Treasury official: Recapitalizing GSEs would take 20 years [View news story]
    "Only legislation can protect taxpayers"
    If you, like Mrs. Miller think that govt. is the answer to everything then this might make a lot of sense to you. The old saying appears to be true, at least for people that think like this. If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

  • Deflation Is A No-Show Thanks To Easy Money And Rising Wealth [View article]
    There is and has been many times in the past, $4 gas in Calif., NY, and many other places off and on for a very long time and usage has certainly not abated so the statement that "once gas hits that $4 buck mark nationwide people will reign in their spending" is simply, demonstrably, incorrect.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: More Clarity From The Market Message? [View article]
    I like and read Mr. Miller but unless I missed something here the section that talks about Paul Kasriel seems pretty weak. To talk about 1 months data and make it appear as if it were some kind of trend is the worst kind of alarmist economics. If this trend could be substantiated over say 6 months, it might have some validity but there are many many other explanations for a single months data.

  • The U.S. Shale Oil Miracle Disappears [View article]
    So because one of the possible locations of shale oil has less potential than first thought, the whole shale oil industry is disappearing. Ridiculous. It's headlines and articles like these that make me recognize them as alarmist nonsense that I usually just ignore.

  • What If Lowflation Isn't A Trap? [View article]
    The real point here is that the students have to put on their big boy and girl pants, get real jobs, and not expect mommy and daddy or rely on "guarantees from the government" to adjust or pay their loans for them.

    I never had anyone pay off my credit cards, mortgage, or cars. Some I have paid off, some I am still paying for. But I was never acted like a financial victim and to say that people can't act like grown ups and take responsibility for their expenses is the very definition of a dependant person. The day they decide to stand on their own two feet is the day become adults.

  • What If Lowflation Isn't A Trap? [View article]
    If a student has graduated (with a useful degree, not some Gay-African-Victim studies degree)is working and can get a new loan, they absolutely can refinance their student loans.
    That is not to say there aren't plenty of problems but to say (or even intimate) that student loans can not be refinanced is just incorrect.

  • An Overdue Major Stock-Market Selloff Is Looming [View article]
    All I have to do is see "An Overdue Major Stock-Market Selloff Is Looming" and I know that 1. the information is either obvious or specious, and 2, the person writing is trying to sell me something. Time to move on.

  • General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt Is Doing 3 Excellent Things For Shareholders [View article]
    I realize this is a financial publication but though the writer of this article states two reasons for investors dislike of Immelt there are a substantial numbers of Americans (myself included) that have a third reason to disapprove of Immelt and his policies.

    For those who's memory goes back further than 1 quarter, GE and Immelt sold GE products to Iran and probably other enemies of the US. He only stopped doing business with these people after being exposed and shamed into discontinuing the practice.

    And for those who will try to say that GE didn't sell these products, a German company did, I'm sorry that you are so easily distracted that you are unable to connect the dots.

  • In a defeat for organized labor, Volkswagen workers reject union [View news story]
    Chalk one up for those fighting the Thugocracy. And Hendershott give one of the best reasons why union are mostly unnecessary. If there is a mutual agreement between a workforce and its company, there is no need for an interloper( union).
